Just a couple more days until the fun begins! You won’t to miss out on this special sale on getting your senior pictures done! All the details are coming June 1st! Be ready to schedule your session!
Today it is all about part II of the Senior Model Circus Shoot! In case you missed part I you can visit all its awesomeness still. I loved working with all these girls! We spent the earlier part of the day getting ready at Elixir Salon where Jenn Barlos did their hair and Shasta Hankins did their makeup. These two ladies were like the dream team for getting these girls ready and all glamorous!
For the Senior Models I wanted to do something really fun and out of the box. I created a pinterest board and started gathering inspiration at the beginning of the year. After assembling my team to make it all happen I started looking for my girls. I was excited to find a great mix of girls representing a wide variety of schools in the Spokane area. We have the K’s- Kaylee from North Central High School, Kelsey from Cheney High School, and Kyra from Davenport High School and then we have Peyton from Gonzaga Prep and Sierra from Reardan High School. And, if you know one of these girls you’ll want to hit them up, because they have a special discount card just for you!
For the actual shoot we went into Riverfront Park. I loved being able to shoot in front of the Ferris Wheel and I had created some special tickets just for admittance into our special circus.
The Creatively Yours Senior Circus, that is! My Senior Models are absolutely amazing and we put together an amazing shoot for them. I had the pleasure of working again with Shasta Hankins, my favorite makeup artist hands down, and Jenn Barlos, my go to hair stylist to create some amazing looks for each of the girls. Prior to the session the girls and I met to talk about wardrobe and they each did a great job coming up with unique and perfectly “circusy” outfits! We spent the day together at Elixir Salon (shout out to them for allowing us to invade their salon!) getting ready and then headed into downtown Spokane to the famous Riverfront Park. We got to spend several hours shooting the girls in front of the Ferris Wheel, on the bridges, and by the Spokane River.
If you know one of these girls you’ll want to hit them up for one of their Senior model cards. By showing this card at your Image Premier you’ll save $75 off your print package!
Meet Kaylee James, North Central High School
We nicknamed Kaylee our Ring Master. Her outfit made her the perfect choice to direct and command our little band!
Kelsey was our Lion Tamer. Her fierce outfit, hair, and attitude made her the perfect fit!
Kyra was our Barker and Performer. Her loud and outspoken attitude and wardrobe definitely drew some attention to our little Circus.
Sierra was in charge of concessions. Her sweet vintage style reminded us all of a 1950s ice cream shop girl!
Peyton was our Ticket Master. She was the one guarding the door making sure we all had our tickets.
I can’t believe 6 months have already gone by since we welcomed my sweet niece to the family and I did her newborn photos! It is amazing how much they change in 6 months! Miss H has become quite the little pro at sitting up by herself, so it was time for some new portraits. I absolutely love this age! They can sit, but can’t really move, so they stay where you put them, plus their personalities are so darn cute at this age. And, she proved this whole fact perfectly! We started out in the studio where paid a little homage to Mom and Dad’s musical talents. They are both part of the band Cathedral Pearls, voted one of the best in the area! From the studio we moved outdoors into the field. There is something about a little baby in a field that is just pure sweetness. Using the crate and the suitcase to help again contain Miss H and to keep her out of the grass we were able to create some adorable images that I know will stand the test of time.
